Growth Strategy and draft District Plan workshop

Join our community workshops to discuss our city’s Growth Strategy and draft District Plan. By sharing your knowledge and views on our city’s future, we can ensure that we are making the right decision for our city together.

Porirua is growing and changing and we want to work with the community to help shape this change. To do this the Porirua City Council is reviewing its District Plan as well as developing a Growth Strategy. The Growth Strategy will provide the high level direction around ‘why’ and ‘where’ we will grow and change, whereas the District Plan review will create rules around ‘how’ we change and ‘what’ this will look like, while also directing how we protect our environment.

The workshops will be highly interactive and visual, and will help us develop the formal Growth Strategy document which will be released in November 2018. It will also provide an opportunity to understand the major changes to the draft District Plan from our current operative District Plan, and provide us with feedback.

For more information, see the council’s community workshops page.

In case you haven’t been to one, there’s one tonight (6pm Thursday 8 November) and another next week (6pm Tuesday 13 November). They are good opportunities to find out what’s planned for the region, voice concerns and provide feedback.
